Norman House- 11th Century-medieval or mediaeval-
any way you spell it--its a long time ago




Embracing Both Coast and Countryside

Once in Christchurch, we first visited the Priory, next we walked in the town center, then off to Mudeford Quay and finally,  its link to the sea.

...managed  to climb aboard a small boat  fishing Dorsett Bridge Pool, on one of the finest chalk streams in Britain, flowing  from  the legendary Hampshire Avon.
The waterway beautifully winds its way through the city and we were lead to some beautiful unexpected  discoveries.  It is reminiscent of  our Cambridge trip this Summer, although no signs of  Edwardian punts that could  provide that unique water persepctive of the traquil sourroundings. 

The annual Office for National Statistics survey says this is the oldest city in England--in terms of over 65 years of age, and also one of the happiest,  in terms of life satisfaction and sense of things.

We  drove through The New Forest on the return,  which is actually ancient woodlands. It is a National Park reserve but it is evident  by the water and timber resources, that the conquering armies and communities  all had a hand in making it what it is today, a great place of expolration.

It remains one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the south-east of England, covering southwest Hampshire and southeast Wiltshire.






Fish and chips is quintessential English,
Fishing, Fish and Chips-well that's just OMC-Oh My Cod! redundant
